  1. 1. Making Room for Peace : Challenging Intractable Conflict Through Tourism

    Author : Jack Shepherd; Daniel Laven; Sandra Wall-Reinius; Dorina-Maria Buda; Mittuniversitetet; []

Taking inspiration from the confidence of global organisations and tourism scholars that tourism has a role in peacebuilding, I explore how tourism could serve to challenge conflicts that are deemed intractable - conflicts that are particularly hard to solve.
